Partridge shrug.

Who was it on here a couple of weeks ago trying to claim Skunk Anansie were no longer relevant?

Is this not just the same list every year apart from your Sam Fender/Jake Bugg/… and the like being added and presumably dropped the next time it comes round?

Always good to have a nice list to look at.

Presumably this is pretty much what you’d hear on radio x on a daily basis?

Who?

They’re not in the top 100 at all.

Does anyone know if you can vote for anything British in this poll, or is it selections from a pre-approved list?

I’ve listened to a few moments of Nothing But Thieves so you don’t have to

Anthemic X factor style ballads but with a few guitars. The singer looks very young. None of you will like it at all

The amount of Oasis on that list boggles the mind…

Got to be a song I think. Otherwise the Union Jack would have been top ten.

My question exactly. Who the hell are Nothing But Thieves?
